Tickets for trainees and apprentices

For apprentices/trainees who need to use bus and rail services regularly, we offer reduced-price monthly season tickets as well as the supersaver all-year season ticket.   

Monthly season tickets for apprentices/trainees are valid for the calendar month printed on them from 0.00 on the first of the month till close of services on the last day of the month. Close of services is 6 am the following morning.

Tickets for apprentices and trainees

When you buy a ticket for an apprentice/trainee you will need to submit a filled out entitlement form. This must be validated by the company where you are doing your apprenticeship/traineeship (and then by the relevant Chamber of Crafts or Chamber of Commerce).

Apprentices/trainees will automatically be sent the form (entitlement form) by post when their apprenticeship/traineeship contract has been officially registered by the Hamburg Chamber of Commerce and Crafts, or they can otherwise get it at our service centres or via the our Infoline on 040/19 449.

It is so easy – just a few steps to get your monthly season ticket

Personal passes for apprentices/trainees are only issued via our service centres. Just bring along a passport photo which shows you to advantage and your entitlement form. The entitlement form for the reduced-price ticket must always be carried together with the ticket.
